[access-uk] Re: Recommendations for a GPS App for the Iphone

Hi Saqib.

My IPhone 4S gets a good location fix within a few seconds, no more than a minute or two. It certainly shouldn't take 20 minutes, and if it does, you probably need to double check that Wi-Fi is switched on as Wi-Fi is used to help in fixing the location. Also, are you in a good signal coverage area?

All the best, Ibrahim.

Hi. I've used that app of late and it's quite good. Problem is that my 4S
doesn't give accurate location details time to time and this usually happens
within the first 20 minutes of using any GPS app.  If you are traveling
about on regular routes then you don't really need turn by turn guidence.

Thanks Ibrahim, I have just bought Ariadne, so looks as though Navigon is
going to be my next purchase.  Seems to run on GPS, if I have understood
that correctly?

Hi Richard.

No, Sendero Look Around just tells you what the streets are called and how
far they are away from you.  If I'm being honest its not a tool I find
particularly useful preferring instead Ariadne which gives me much more
timely if less information, but its more relevant if you see what I mean.  I
think Look Around is about £5, though I'm not sure off the top of my head.

All the best, Ibrahim.

Hi Ibrahim, Re Sendero Look around, does it indicate the side of the cross
street, and do you know roughly how much it is?
Thanks,
Richard

Hi David/Sharon.

I'd just add a couple more tools to the mix here, Where too which is an
incredibly powerful points of interest app with dozens of categories and
Sendero Look around, a simple but useful app for getting information about
your current location without too much fuss, including nearest five points
of interests, cross streets and so on.  Another app I use is called Navigon
Now, a more efficient way of entering addresses in to Navigon with the
option to copy addresses you have in emails and web pages etc.

All the best, Ibrahim.

The best without doubt for assisting with routes is called Navigon.  It is
quite expensive but very accessible.  It comes from the Garmin stable, and
they are receptive to comments on accessibility.

Another for familiarisation from your current location is called "around
me".

The third one which I have is Ariadne GPS.

This trio gives a load of information and also good navigation.

Hi,



Can anyone recommend a user friendly type GPS app for my iphone.  I want
something to tell me where I am, and something to help me find new places
etc.



I have no sight, so need something that works well with voiceover.



Many thanks.



Sharon
